#OTRHoopsReport: Super 6 Showcase Standouts – Aug 3, 2017

Over 200 college coaches were in attendance for the Super 6 Showcase Session I.

Atlanta, Ga – During the second live period of July, the Super 6 Showcase in Atlanta was the place to be. Whether the players were signed to play at a top 25 program next year or still deciding on which school they will call home, the competition was terrific. Everyone had to execute in order to get a victory. In this recap we look at several prospects who impacted their team for a victory in their respective games.

Landers Nolley (Atlanta, Ga) | Team Loaded NC –Nolley was one of the biggest stock risers of the summer. At 6-foot-7, Nolley has range out to 25-feet plus, there is no question that he stretches the defense better than most.  When he gets hot he has the ability to go on a run to knock down five or six deep three pointers in a row. Nolley has a good basketball IQ and showed both physical and mental toughness on the floor.  His ability to shoot the ball alone makes him a hot commodity. Georgetown and Temple offered Nolley on Wednesday.

George Conditt (Chicago, IL) | Team RWA – Holding an Illinois offer coming into the week, Conditt was a main attraction at the Super 6 Showcase. With his motor and length at 6-foot-10, Conditt has a chance to be a dominant big man. He can defend the paint & rebound out of space filling the stat sheet with double-doubles easily. He even tabbed a triple double with 10 point 11 rebounds and 11 blocks on Saturday afternoon in session II. Conditt has recently picked up offers from Georgia Tech, VCU, Georgia State, and New Mexico after the Super 6 Showcase.

Anthony Edwards (Atlanta, Ga) | Atlanta Xpress – From what I saw during July, there can’t be many kids in the country better than Anthony Edwards in the 2020 class. He’s young but he is a dog on the floor on both ends. He can score consecutive possessions with ease & although he is a superb athlete, he has the skill to match it. He had a tremendous performance against a talented Nike South Beach team where he scored the first 18 points for Atlanta Xpress. He can score it at every level & isn’t shy in the open floor. He set the gym on fire when he baptized a Showtime Ballers defender on the break. Edwards is player to keep an eye on in the coming years.

Serrell Smith (Orlando, FL) | Showtime Ballers – Smith has been a hot name in Florida for some time now and he showed that at the Super 6 Showcase. Smith can generate his own shot when he wants but is a willing passer as he found teammates all week for easy points. You have to guard him within 3-4 feet of the three point line because he can shoot the ball from deep or blow by defenders and make a play in the lane if they close out too fast.

Keyshawn Bryant (Winter Haven, FL) | Showtime Ballers – Bryant recently picked up offers from Memphis, Long Beach State, and Southeastern Louisiana University after a strong showing during the month of July. Coming off an ankle injury, Bryant looked healthy for the most part. He is a super athlete with ability to fly above the rim in half court or in transition. The lefty can knock the midrange jumper down but is best attacking the basket.

Amanze Ngumezi | (Savannah, Ga) | 1Family – Amanze “Slim” Ngumezi had maybe the most impressive summer of any player we saw this summer. Ngumezi showed he could play with his back to the basket with an arsenal of moves from the post & extended to the wing to hit a couple of jumpers. He terrorized the rim all weekend with dunk after dunk. His play earned him several offers including Arkansas, Illinois, Tennessee, & Georgia just to name a few.  Look for Ngumezi recruitment to continue to rise during the fall.

Elias King (Atlanta, Ga) | AOT – As a 2019 playing up 17U, King had no problem adjusting. His 6’7 thin frame allows him to be a versatile scorer from anywhere on the floor. A matchup problem on the perimeter, King can get his shot off over top or make his way to the rim with his killer crossovers. He can guard multiple positions on the floor and make it extremely difficult for them to attempt to guard him. King recently picked up an offer from Miami and was on campus at Georgia Tech earlier in the week.

DeAntoni Gordon (Mobile, AL) | Alabama Fusion– Gordon holds a combination of size, athleticism, and skill that coaches look for in a forward. He’s active on both ends of the floor and can cause problems for a team with his physical ability to get into the lane. A recent Wichita State commit, Gordon played no games during Session II of the Super 6, posting multiple thirty point games. He showed he could score against any one and in a variety of ways. As a natural wing, Gordon was able to beat defenders off the bounce for dunks inside the paint or step out to stretch the defense from behind the arc.
